"The University of Leeds is a research-intensive university with impact across regional, national and international boundaries. Our research is increasingly making an impact on global society and we have fruitful two-way relationships across a spectrum of external organisations. We are committed to building and maintaining these relationships at institutional level (through entities such as NEXUS and the Cultural Institute) as well embedding such engagement within our disciplines.
Our community of Postgraduate Researchers play an essential part in our passion for research and innovation. We are committed not just to the success of their research projects, but also to their individual development, both as effective and impactful researchers and as ethical and responsible global citizens. Working towards a Leeds Doctorate places them within a vibrant global community of researchers to share with and learn from, provides word-class professional training and development, disciplinary and inter-disciplinary supervision and collaboration, and support for their wellbeing."
Luke Windsor, Dean of the Leeds Doctoral College
Join our Research Supervision Community
OD&PL's Research Supervision Community on MS Teams for supervisors and colleagues who support doctoral researchers is a place to access professional development resources, accreditation opportunities, news and policy developments and share practice. In the community you can access a new comprehensive online course called Supervising Doctoral Studies. It equips supervisors to deal with emerging challenges, so they can establish the best environment to support doctoral candidates to become independent researchers.
Supporting your Supervision Practice Workshops
Our provision of workshops and resources support individuals to develop their research supervision practice in order to provide an excellent postgraduate researcher experience. We support postgraduate research (PGR) supervisors, internal examiners of research degrees and directors of research studies, with a range of development opportunities.
endeavour bring to the experience; and to consider strategies to bridge these.
Please note this course is relevant for the final oral examination (final PhD viva) and NOT the transfer viva.
